(ERLANGER, Ky.) – To commemorate a rider’s special relationship with a horse, to celebrate a championship win, or to promote a stable, ranch, farm, or riding camp, custom-designed equestrian jewelry is offered by Insignia Collection, Inc., a division of Jewel-Craft, Inc. Pieces can be created by the company’s skilled jewelry craftspeople based on an organization’s logo, supplied sketch, or photo. The company does not require a minimum order amount for custom designs, and estimates are free.
“Creating a piece of custom, keepsake jewelry is a wonderful way for stables, riding teams, tack shops, or equestrian organizations to promote their brand,” suggests Russ Anderson, president of Insignia Collection. “Most of our designs are two-dimensional, but our expert designers, modelers, and sculptors can create lifelike three-dimensional or high relief designs for use as pendants, earrings, rings, and lapel pins.”
Custom designs can even be scaled up in size for the creation of belt buckles, drink coasters, and Christmas ornaments, continued Anderson. All custom pieces are produced in a choice of sterling silver, platinum, 10K, 14K, or 18K yellow or white gold, or from Allura, a composite metal. For further embellishment, gemstones may be added.
“We’ve created many signet pieces for private stables, dude ranches, and large equestrian theme parks for sale in their gift shops,” adds Anderson.
Using advanced CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) technology, the Insignia Collection design team translates an idea, existing logo, or drawing into a realistic, full-color, three-dimensional rendering of the piece. The rendering is returned to the customer via e-mail for review to accommodate alterations and adjustments.
The Equestrian Collection has more than 70 different designs depicting horses and riding activities in silhouette or two-dimensional forms. The collection features the most popular breeds of horses, mules, and donkeys in pieces including pendants, earrings, rings, cufflinks, lapel pins, keychains, and money clips.
All of the services from Insignia Collection, including custom CAD/CAM designs, are available 52 weeks a year, allowing the company to provide expedited service nationwide. The company employs designers, expert jewelers, setters, and finishers among their full staff of more than 160 employees.
